Rear entertainment

Hello everyone
My DVD changer in boot for rear entertainment has gone out of order
Is there any other brand compatible to BMW which I can use instead of getting original BMW DVD changer

Bluetooth

Dear members
In my 7 series e65 year 2004 I can see the option of Bluetooth but my phone never gets connected to it
Do I have to install some kite for connecting these or what
Furthermore in the car phone my one sim works whereas no other sims get detected
Does anyone have any solution for these two
Thnx

I could never find an aftermarket replacement. I finally found a used one on eBay in the $200-$300 range.

For the Bluetooth pairing you the BTUM kit from BMW
The key can be programmed to lock / unlock, you need software or dealer

As Paper asked, what exactly is wrong with the DVD? is it physically damaged or just not reading DVD's?

My DVD changer would get stuck when it started going through the magazine. If I only loaded one disk, I could sometimes get it to play, but it would never return the disk to the magazine. Thus, it would never eject. I took it apart many times but could never get it working. After replacing it, I got a bit more brave with the disassembly and ended up trashing it completely. I think I kept the magazine, but I trashed the rest.

The software in the front MMI (front display) does not support Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), or bluetooth audio streaming as you call it. Even if you remove your existing TCU and replace with a TCU 1.5 which can support A2DP, there is no way to enable the function on the E65/E66.

The BTUM does not support A2DP, just pairing of a mobile phone.

If you have a SIM card in your front drawer, your TCU likely only supports bluetooth pairing with the BMW handset which docks in that front drawer. See photo. You may be able to code it to support pairing with other phones, but I'm not familiar with your TCU system.

Friends plz advise that in my e 65 2004 the car phone is placed in the front console and is of Motorolla brand but I don't know the model of the phone n have ordered btum of Motorolla from ebay
Will that btum use already present mic near drivers sun visor and will it also be able to stream music
The reason I again asking about music streaming is bcoz while buying from ebay it was mentioned there tht this will also stream music
Also does anyone have the method of installing that btum
Furthermore friends in our cars there's no reverse camera but only sensors which are shown in the front screen so us it possible that v can get a reverse camera there
If yes then what do v hv to install in addition so that reverse camera starts operating
A camera and do v also need a reverse camera module or interface
Plz advise
